About this title

Synopsis:

In this sequel to his award-winning Empire of the Sun, young James returns to England at the end of World War II. He stumbles through medical study at Cambridge, trains briefly as an RAF pilot in Canada, and marries. When his wife dies suddenly, Jim is thrust into the violence and sexual promiscuity of the sixties. Penetrating and wise, J. G. Ballard's biting social commentary and pushing of boundaries make this semi-autobiographical novel a small classic.

About the Author:

J. G. Ballard was born in Shanghai in 1930 and for more than three decades he lived in Shepperton, England. His other works include Empire of the Sun, Crash, and The Day of Creation. He passed away in 2009.
